Red, white and blue is all around us as we get ready for Independence Day next week!
There are so many blue colors in overdyed threads we have to choose from! I thought how cool it would be to scramble a few of those threads just as in the olden days when the same color consistently was not stitched, but whatever was available at the time, lending to a very simple sampler with interesting effects with color.
The Butterfly bushes are in full bloom right now here but this year I haven't seen near as many.
I saw a few the other day and always pretty as can be, but an unusual color mixture.
If you are a butterfly lover like myself, this motif and blue shadey verse might brighten your day..........................especially if you love the color blue and give you something to stitch to add to your Summertime ornie basket. I'm thinking of stitching this one up 1 over 1 on 36 count and putting in a tiny navy blue wood frame I got at a local thrift store.
Variated threads suggested are:
DMC 645 Grey
And yes, the song Summertime Blues is playing through my mind tonight for some reason....:)
Color Me Happy,
